Faith 21:I had a miscarriage may 24th and it's been really hard for me. I just recently got back on here. I just really don't know how to cope and it's seeming everyone is being so mean my life. how do I deal with all this?
Everyone deals differently, so works for one may not work for another. That being said, I through myself into reading and cleaning out my house. I am a stay at home wife, so I have to through myself into everything to keep busy. With my first mc I through myself back into my art; but, this time I have no desire to paint or draw anything. For the first few weeks, I basically became a recluse and didn't leave my house except for when I had to. I hope you find an outlet for yourself. Basically, focus on you and go back to what made you happy before you got pregnant.
Sorry you are going through this.
Everyone is different. Unfortunately, this is my third loss and I have handled each of them differently. I would recommend that you talk to someone about your feelings. You don't have to do it now, if you would like to take some time. Just don't let it eat away at you.
With my second loss, back in April 2012, I kept everything inside and thought if I just didn't talk about it, I wouldn't be upset. It was a huge mistake. Keeping it inside made me so angry and I was mad at the world. I also started some new hobbies to try and occupy my time. I didn't like having the down time, because it made my mind wander and then I would just get upset again.
This time around, I have really been trying to stay positive. I have taken the time to rest. I have also talked to both DH and my sister. I take one day at a time. I try to focus on the positives in my life. There are days I am mad, don't get me wrong and then there are days, I am sad. I just have to have faith. I know it's easier said than done. I am seriously considering going to talk to someone professionally. There is also no shame in that.
